I am an experienced instructor and tutor. I have taught at high school, university, and Fortune 500 companies. I hold a BS degree in Civil Engineering from Columbia University, School of Engineering and Applied Science and an M.B.A. in Finance from New York University Stern School of Business. I scored a 760/800 on my Math SAT.

At Columbia University, I took advanced courses in calculus and physics. I teach advanced mathematics, physics, and finance regularly. Subjects taught include Linear Algebra, Calculus I, II and III, including AP Calculus AB, BC, precalculus. I also teach algebra, geometry, and trigonometry, SAT Subject Test Level 1 and Level 2, Regents High School Exam Algebra I & II, AP Physics 1 and 2, AP Physics C - Mechanics and SAT Subject Test Physics.

I also teach advanced mathematics and problem-solving techniques to prepare middle and high school students for mathematical competitions including the Math Olympiad, AMC 8, AMC 10, AMC 12 and MATHCOUNTS. I also work with students in preparing them for college study for careers in mathematics, science, engineering, and data analytics.

I also specialize in test preparation for the SAT, ACT, GRE, and GMAT exams. I am very familiar with these exams. I quickly find gaps in student knowledge and then customize the instruction and lesson appropriately. I teach intuitively, providing many examples and explanations. With my proprietary methodology, I can help you score higher with practice.

At NYU Stern, I took advanced courses in finance. I teach Finance to graduate and undergraduate students. Subjects taught in finance include financial mathematics, financial products such as options, futures, other financial derivatives and fixed income securities, corporate finance, financial management, capital budgeting, and economics. I can help define a plan for MBA finance projects.

I enjoy teaching. I like to teach my students how to think about mathematics and physics and how to think about solving problems. I can quickly identify gaps in knowledge and prepare accordingly. I provide an intuitive understanding of the subject supplemented with analytical and quantitative work. I try hard to motivate them to practice, and I give them advice that is long-lasting and which will help them succeed and score higher.

I worked for top banks, where I programmed and developed complex financial applications. I also developed software for major convertible bond trading firms and hedge funds.

Courses taken at Columbia University School of Engineering include Advanced Calculus I,IIB, IIIB, IVB, Ordinary Differential Equations, Applied Mathematics, Physics - Mechanics, Physics- Electricity and Magnetism, Physics Optics and Thermodynamics, Structural Analysis I and II, Elements of Structural Design, Structural Theory and Design, Reinforced Concrete Theory, Mechanics of Solids I and II, Fluid Mechanics I and II, Hydraulic Engineering, Soil Mechanics and Foundations I and II, Bridge Design. General Chemistry I and II, Principles of Economics I and II.

Ephraim is the Best

I have been relying on Ephraim to prepare me for the SAT (Math). He does an amazing job of analyzing my needs and then works with my to address them. Through working with him I am increasingly gaining confidence that will achieve my SAT goals of stick the program Ephraim has outlined for me.

Happy to have found Ephraim.

Ephraim is very organized and responsive, he took the time to find details and information that he would need to help my son be successful during the tutoring and in my son's math class, as well as competition math. My 12-year-old son enjoyed his first lesson and found the time spent with Ephraim extremely helpful. My son is looking forward to the next lesson with Ephraim.

Mr. Ephraim is a great fit for my children

I have been using Mr. Ephraim weekly for my daughters’ math tutoring needs. One is an advanced math student and the other is slightly above grade level. He fills the gap between their school lessons and where they need to be to be competitive with other ambitious students. He is patient, kind and conveys a genuine love of teaching mathematics. I can’t wait until my son is old enough for Mr. E. in a couple of years! He is a refreshing change from the uni. student math tutors, who tend to be fine for cramming for an upcoming test but aren’t up for giving a deeper treatment of math topics.

Ephraim is very kind and nice. He was able to identify my weaknesses and help me understand how I can go about overcoming them. I really appreciated his help. I definitely recommend and will use him to tutor me again!

Knows the material and makes use of time.

Who better to tutor a future engineer than an engineer who offers tutoring tailored to the student. His friendly and outgoing personality motivates my student to want to do well. He makes a point to discover the students strengths and weaknesses and strives to fill in the gaps, so the student has a full understanding of the material. The white board is an excellent tool to see what the student is reviewing online. I could never find a tutor of Ephraim's caliber in our small town.

Enthusiastic Thumbs Up!

Generous with his time. Exercises great insight and patience for hard subject matter. He provides both the 30,000 foot view of a subject as well as the minute details with seamless command.

Enthusiastic and patient tutor

Ephraim is teaching me different ways to do business math problems that make it easier for my work environment. This covers a basic understanding of currency fluctuations. He is able to explain it multiple ways and is very patient with my questions.

Rebecca, 5 lessons with Ephraim

Very thoroughly, knowledgeable.

He spoke with me before the lesson trying to understand where I was having problems. After that, he planned the sessions accordingly and it has been very good. He is patient and knowledgeable.

Perfect AP Physics Tutor

Ephraim is knowledgeable and really helped my high school daughter with AP physics. We weren't sure how a online tutor would go but it worked out very well! So nice that she could work at home in the comfort of her own home with a busy schedule. Ephraim explained everything to her in such a clear manner that she got it!
